Floodplain Management is the operation of a community program of corrective and preventative measures for reducing flood damage. These measures take a variety of forms and generally include requirements for zoning, subdivision or building, and special-purpose floodplain ordinances.
Property owners in high risk flooding areas may want to secure additional flood insurance coverage. Property owners in lower risk areas may still experience flooding due to possible localized floods. Other expenses associated with hurricanes may be windstorm damages, debris removal, and new landscaping after severe weather events.
